    I have been working at US Department of the Interior full-time

    Pros

    Relatively steady employment. Excellent benefits, including dental, health, vision, 401K equivalent and vacation / sick leave accrual.

    Cons

    Slow promotion process. Some federal employees have worked over 15 years without promotion to lower management.

    Advice to Management

    Turnover is not always a bad thing. Feel free to get newer blood into leadership positions. Performance metrics should be better defined for reviews.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The interview process was not difficult at all the staff were all very kind and accommodating. My interviewer who was the legal specialist asked me a bit about myself as standard interviewers do, and asked why I am interested in the position, how does my experience relate to the job, and why am I excited about working in the legal field.
